1) The longer I watch Hallmark Channel 240, the more the audio becomes out of sync with the video. It only seems to happen on this channel.
2) Could you add a way to browse through the premium channel VODs by the year the movie was made? I like to see what newer movies have been added to the lineup, but I have to go through all of them to see what year they were made. Also the sorting by category is out of whack on at least Cinemax and Showtime. There are horror movies listed under comedies.
Why not set up Sports Packages in a similar fashion as On Demand movies etc. For example, for NFL Football Verizon would charge a one-time per season "enrollment fee" (for the football season say $59.95) and then give the enrollee access to all NFL games at a "per game fee" (say $5.99 per game watched - like on demand movies). Similar packages could be available for the NHL, MLB, NBA, etc. I think there would be a larger number of subscribers to this type of sports package than what is currently offered.
I have been a customer with verizon wireless for many years. I recently signed up with verizon fios television and internet. It's inconvenient to have two different online accounts for each of these services. I wish I would have been able to add on the residential services with my wireless account and combine them into one bill.
I called to inquire about the benefits of upgrading my TV service to Quantum Enhanced. I was told about the benefits of being able to recored more shows at a time and being able to fast forward and rewind live TV. But I was not informed that I would be losing my Pandora Widget.
Sadly I only learned that after I had already upgraded. It would have been nice to know that I would lose Pandora when I was inquiring about the upgrade. Now I'm left wondering what else will I discover that I've lost.
Would like to see the show descriptions in the TV Guide in larger letters to make them easier to read for older folks. This can be accomplished by removing the names of the actors that are repeated in the descriptions.
Verizon offers, by default, the many guide views (Favorites, Subscribed, All, HD Only, etc), however, there is one view I would really like to see: HD Mixed. It's great seeing the channels I get in HD, however, I'd like to also see the channels that I only get in SD (so exclude the channels that would "automatically" be switched to their HD version if I clicked on them). So, I could have a guide showing all of my subscribed channels, at their maximum resolution. So instead of:
Now that the channel guide has been updated, the bottom frame advertises on-demand movies. We find many of these ads inappropriate - as we don't want to see erotic or demonic movie ads - especially considering the kids. We would like control over what we watch - including what is featured on this channel guide. This should be appropriate for the whole family.
Greatful as I am for Verizon's new FIOS 1 news service in my region, it's just not right that, now, one second after I turn on my tv, the box automatically switches from the channel that I was last on to the channel Verizon wants me to start with - FIOS 1.
FIOS is great and beats cable. But bit by bit, it's turning into an intrusion. More and more I'll press a key like Guide, and FIOS will try to sell me something.
But automtically reverting to FIOS 1 everytime I turn on tv from the channel I was watching, is just one of those things that I'm sure seems like no big deal in the corporate boardroom - but really is a very big deal. Every time I turn on the TV, Verizon reminds me that it is the master, not me the user. Every time, I'm reminded the subtlety with which Verizon is increasingly trying to take control of my television.
The channel listing for my area is over a year out of date. If you're going to continue to provide a link to a pdf users can download, please update it more often and/or provide information as to when it will be updated. Thanks!
Show up for a repair appointment or at least call if/when you are going to be late. I waited 4 hours for the tech to show, as my appt was between 8 and 12. No tech, no call. I call Customer Service and do I actually talk to a human being, NO! The recording asks if I can wait a bit longer .. at least an hour so I waited ... 2 hours .. no call, no tech. Comcast service itself was not great but at least when I called I could talk to a human.
